Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Thanks one and all for taking it the right way...

After re-reading my post, I realized that it might have sounded like another "CREAM vs DEAD" thread which WAS NOT my intention...

And, rather than taking it that way, you all took it as a prod to suggest some of your own--thanks for that, cap-n, whirl, utop and the rest.

For me, the little listing above is an entirely BIASED, idiosyncratic set of songs based on what I've been spending my time on the past two months, and THAT's it.

By no means an exhaustive survey of anything more than my new found CREAM collection, input from LiA on that, along with a couple of comparisons with DEAD shows and QMS, and then ABB and Jimi...I only used these four others as I was comparing five groups that I have ample experience with, and then just comparing them on my own, very singular sense of "energy output" during a ten minute or so jam sequence.

Arb--yep, I could've picked a number of 68 selections for Jerry and the Boys, but 12-29 (OOne) has that bizarre sequence of unreal sounds, and speed of note production that always impresses...QMS, more in the spirit of a "nonDEAD" SF jam band was thrown in since I've always thought a great deal of that one side of HTrails, and have many of their recordings of extended jams (an old Smokestack Lightening by them was in consideration! Forgot I had it!). ABB, in my experience, typically didn't produce the extreme energy output/unit time (not that there is ANYTHING wrong with that--just a different approach, that I love nontheless).

Could've done LedZep of course, but don't have as much of their material, nor the Who...

Hope it's useful to the handful of you with CREAM interests, and to whatever degree other suggestions move you to explore others.

Thanks again for understanding...

QMS defiantly worth more attention . I have always wondered if "whole shows" exist ,of what they taped for Happy Trails . I have heard the a few of the scattered live things ( the "Concert Vault"), but I wish there could be a few archival releases of some of their shows . Seems to me the Dead played with them, on those "Happy Trails" shows, and were not allowed to tape . A fantasy would be a release of a complete "Quick and the Dead show ".

Unfortunately, from those same FM brcasts in the 70s (various "revisit the 60s" shows I heard in HS/college in the Bay Area), I have a number of QMS jams on various tunes, BUT since there is no QMS archive that I follow, like here, I have no idea when/where they are from (sure I could dig in and research it, but hey--two bands are enough for me on this sort of thing!).

Like you, would happily buy more if they released it...

I liked the part about your brother. His first-hand(to you, second-hand to us) account and his comparison is interesting.

Yeah, most of what I've mentioned about my two older brothers (one passed) came from recollections of them when I was a kid in the 60s (they were both in HS/college in the Bay Area, right at the "right" time, 62-72)...the older one and I have now begun talking a great deal (I send him shows, he sends me feedback and stories; good trade!) about it all, esp as I have veered off on this CREAM obsession.

I think I mentioned that I actually "heard" my first DEAD show in GGPk from the parent's car as they dropped my two brothers off, and then parked for a while to "listen/watch" the stream of humanity moving past...all he could tell me was it was probably spring or summer of 67 and it was a free show with them, and no one else, he thought.
